A 5K, an ended vacation and a sandwich

Now I’m back to Sao Paulo. My brief vacation is over and it was a nice time spent with family. Had a small trip and got to know a new city. But my running wasn’t what I expected.

I didn’t have the 2k and 1k sessions I hoped for. Fortunately, finished this period with a consistent 5k paced run at the tough track in the park back in my hometown.

For this run I ran clockwise. This time, I didn’t face a 2k uphill at the beginning and they became 2k downhill. But the 1st km is also uphill when running clockwise and after it you have a flat part followed by a small downhill.

I ran controlling my effort: was slower when going up and faster when going down.

See the splits:

Mar 19th – 5k paced below 22:30

KM|Time|AHR
01|04:47|163 (mostly uphill)
02|04:34|180 (uphill/downhill)
03|04:30|185 (uphill/downhill)
04|04:17|184 (mostly downhill)
05|04:16|187 (mostly downhill)
Tot|22:24|180

At this point you might be asking: What about that sandwich in the title? The sandwich was a snack served during yesterday’s flight that made sick and I could barely sleep. Couldn’t run or go to work today. Spent most of the time in the bathroom (don’t worry: no further details are given :)). Right now I’m feeling much better and hopefully will be completely recovered by tomorrow. And if I run, will be an easy one, no more than 40 minutes. There’s a 10k race this weekend and I was hoping for a sub 45min. I hope I’m there by Sunday.
